Solving Feet: Anatomically Correct Socks with Tanja Warter | SFM E91

  1. Solving Feet: Anatomically Correct Socks with Tanja Warter | SFM E91 Adam Braus & Scot Maupin 40:48


Ever slipped into a pair of socks and wondered if they're doing more harm than good? Join me as we explore the intriguing world of anatomically correct socks with Tanya from Austria, a pioneer in the field. Our lively chat starts off with a mix-up of time zones before diving headfirst into the transformative nature of socks designed to embrace the natural asymmetry of our feet. I share my eye-opening experience with these foot-friendly creations, and Tanya sheds light on the philosophy behind socks that are not just comfortable but aimed at proper toe alignment. It's a revelation for anyone who's ever thoughtlessly pulled on a tube sock.

The adventure doesn't stop at mere sock enlightenment, though. We take a closer look at the development of Plus 12 Barefoot Socks, the innovative children's footwear that champions healthy foot growth. We unravel the necessity of space within shoes and Tanya's decade of dedication to creating socks that support the barefoot shoe movement. You'll be fascinated by the tales of perseverance, collaboration with the proficient knitter Gunter, and the specialized knitting machine that brought these foot-shaped socks to life. It's a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the meticulous craft of producing footwear that's not just comfy but healthy.

As we wrap up, we delve into the broader implications of foot health, discussing 'zookosis' and the importance of anatomically correct footwear. Our conversation touches on the rise of barefoot shoes and how my journey to becoming a barefoot shoe enthusiast highlights the tug-of-war between societal norms and the well-being of our feet. Before parting ways with Tanya, we reflect on the enriching exchange and my own testimonial of these European-crafted socks that have left a lasting impression on my soles and soul. If you're curious about making a simple yet impactful change for healthier, happier feet, this is an episode you won't want to miss.
